In reviewing books on African culture and tribal art, I often complain that little or no attention is paid to the geographical location of the cultural practices and artifacts represented. This wonderful publication is a worthy companion to any collection of African Tribal Art, and is a fascinating primer on Africa as a whole. The only criticism may be that some of the information is out-of-date, and I hope that one day soon there will be a new edition available. Indispensable, and available (used) at a great price.

This book is well written and explaining about whole African continent from emergence of man in Africa, its language family, religion to art with lots of pictures. It gives you a good idea what is like as a whole. Information on each country, however, written in the latter half, is a little too brief. It only explains history and general information such as population and capital, etc. If it could provide us more information on cultural differences in each country in order to let us know how they live, for example, their diet, housing conditions, education systems, fashions, festivals, it would be much more informational and vivid. This is a good atlas to provide an overall picture of the continent Africa.

I found this book very helpful, if a little lack-luster, in teaching a unit on Africa to my 6th grader. It has good drawings and photographs, and a nice section on African history. Of course, it is too small a book to cover anything very deeply, but it was an excellent first step for a broad overview.
